« on: 07.07. 2018 22:24 »
What if this could be fitted in an A10 frame?

Wouldn't take much I'd imagine... (A big 'ammer to create oil pump clearance?)
Oh, and a substantial mortgage.  *eek*

Probably been done many times. I have a GA7 frame modified by 'ammer in the usual place thats fitted with a 1959 Royal Enfield Fury engine to create the REBSA. The angles of the goldie pipe line right up and slips straight on. A very versatile frame.

G'day Morris.
I luv their blurb "almost the same as the std DBD34" then list ALL the things different.
A mate has one of their 600cc motors, cost him $15K. Blew up after only a few hours running. Was replaced by them very quickly.
Cheers

You clamp or weld the bottom tube in what could be called a jig, saw out the section and weld a piece of curved pipe (or even solid bar) in place. 

Total bodgery?  Yes!

bit like a sign in a restaurant in Morpeth "almost award winning restaurant", read a good review so was going to try it out but it was almost open

Would have thought it would be more expensive. My estimation was somewhere in the near of 15K€.
Opens up possibilities...  *doubt* *whistle*

That was $15K 10 years ago so would be a lot more now.

Be nice if someone came up with a batch of nikasil plated alloy barrels, and matching pistons/rings of course,  for our bikes. Pulled my Guzzi V50 motor down at 55k miles to re-ring it and the bores were still like new.

Yeah Butch, but once they wear/delaminate, you just have to bin them. That V50 is good I must admit. I have a Garelli with a written-off Nikasil bore. New barrel required, no rebores.

Hmmm, I bet it wouldn't be cheap for stripping and replating.
(Actually I can buy a new barrel for the Garelli reasonably priced -about $200 for barrel and piston, - stroke of luck that though).
It's a '70's 50cc monkey bike, (don't ask me why on earth I'm doing it!)

Or you could go down the route and get your local engine shop to install new stepped liners into the barrels. That would then put it back to standard bore and not very expensive.

 Good idea in principle, but would need to source the right rings for the job, and still probably only one piston size- but in the case of LM's with I think OS available may be possible...maybe more options now than in the '90's when I had to deal with it and opted for $50 bucks extra for a 947 kit for my Model T....
